Things that helped today: warm beverages (both my own cocoa mix & Swiss Miss which was icky but nostalgic), talking to people (not about my problems, but just in general), and a nice visit with my parents (my dad said it's looking like he'll have a job by Friday). I didn't punch anything, but I did fight with some cables in the server room at work, which was fairly cathartic. They were VERY tangled.
Thank you for the hugs .
The financial stuff is resolving. I had to make the very awkward call to our landlord about late rent. Hulky and I talked about it and came to a resolution. He admitted that he is having a lot of anxiety about getting back to school, but then immediately emailed the people he needed to email to start getting back on track.
